KARE 11 Investigates: ‘Money Mule’ convicted in email scam
After losing much of their life savings, a Minnesota couple has a warning for everyone using email and online banking.
“People in other countries are using our system – our banking system – to rob U.S. citizens,” says Steve Tadevich.
Steve and his wife Claudia were victims of a sophisticated email scam based overseas.
They are not alone. When KARE 11 first reported their story, the FBI said similar email scams were targeting real estate and other financial transactions nationwide.
